Commonly, the surgical portion of the hybrid approach is prior to the transvenous portion in a staged approach, thereby, in principle, allowing the electrophysiologist to confirm epicardial linear lesions and pulmonary vein isolation (PVI); in addition to decreasing the burden of additional endocardial
lesion sets needed to be applied by the electrophysiologist to achieve procedural end-points.
RV mapping and ablation of the VT were attempted but were unsuccessful due to anatomic limitations and challenges reaching the inferior RV aneurysm.
endothelium may be exposed to the turbulent blood flow, but this type of flow does not increase eNOS activity or NO release.
0 cm CVRL, the ventricle was partitioned by the interventricular septum extended upward from the ventral side of heart toward the endocardial
cushions leaving an opening in the interventricular foramen (Figure 3).
As a result, physicians prefer endocardial
LAA closure to epicardial LAA closure, as they are more familiar with the technology, safety, and effectiveness," says Messenger.
6) In addition, contrast echocardiography can be useful, as it provides clearer endocardial
border delineation for the application of the above criteria, especially in cases with more subtle morphology of noncompaction.
Only a hand very practised at anatomical dissection could have cut such a uniform transverse section from human heart tissue, showing various veins and arteries of different cross-sections, and the endocardial

Other associations include MURCS (aplasia of the mullerian duct, unilateral renal agenesis, anomalies of the cervicothoracic somites) and CHARGE (coloboma [a defect of ocular tissue], hearing deficit, choanal atresia, retarded growth and/or development, genital hypoplasia [males only], and endocardial
cushion defect [a spectrum of septal defects resulting from imperfect fusion of the endocardial
cushions and ranging from persistent ostium primum to persistent complete common atrioventricular canal]).
Though our results with endocardial
catheters have effectively demonstrated the efficacy of intracatheter needle injection in the heart, the technique requires considerable skill and some very expensive equipment.
We also saw significant evidence of increase in endocardial
flow, both at rest and when the heart was under stress.
The left ventricle was cut circumferentially into eight samples, each divided into epicardial and endocardial
